    And probably contained more mercury than the other half of the chicken.. where the thermometer broke.

    I saw one swimming in a cenote once that the dive master later called a "two-taco" shrimp. Before that I had no idea there was such an oxymoron as a giant shrimp.

    Had to look up "cenote". Sounds like an interesting dive.

    It was fun, but not as fun as the ocean. Probably one of those things I'll do once.

    My quote of the week comes from the first episode of the new season of Luther (which, BTW as always, was excellent):

    It's important to abolish the unconscious dogmatism that makes people think their way of looking at reality is the only sane way of viewing the world. My goal is to try to get people into a state of generalized agnosticism, not agnosticism about God alone, but agnosticism about everything.

    Absolutely great show. Loved the sociopath Alice and Idris Elba was outstanding. What new season?

    There is a Luther mini-series in the works.

    However, "There's no word at this time about whether or not Ruth Wilson, who's currently starring on Showtime's The Affair, will be back as Alice Morgan."

    That will be a major mistake if she is not in it.
